In this THS exclusive, we can confirm the regular cast of characters joining Harley Quinn in her new animated series for DC’s still yet-to-be-named streaming service and that they are all familiar faces from the DC Comics canon.
The new series will focus on Harley Quinn and her life after she cuts ties from her former boss/love interest, Joker, as she tries to become the new Queenpin of Gotham. From the following character breakdown, it sounds like Joker is the same old Clown Prince of Crime we’ve always known.
[THE JOKER] (40) Equal parts homicidal and charismatic, he’s been Harley’s longtime awful boyfriend, but when Harley breaks up with him, she vows to take his cherished number-one spot on the Most Wanted list. The Joker thinks of Harley as his creation and, as she grows in power, does everything he can to stop her. (SERIES REGULAR)
Along for the ride, will be Harley’s longtime friend and companion, Poison Ivy.
[DR. PAMELA ISLEY (AKA “POISON IVY”)] (LATE 20’s) Sarcastic and incredibly smart, Ivy is Harley’s best friend and now roommate. Very much a loner (she prefers plants over people), Ivy is sometimes the voice of reason but always a true friend to Harley. Ivy soon becomes her reluctant partner-in-crime. (SERIES REGULAR)
Injecting some comedic relief into the show will be Syborg, who was introduced in The New 52 Harley Quinn comics.
[SY BORGMAN] (90’s) Once upon a time, Sy used to be a suave, super spy. Now in his 90s, he’s a wheelchair user with most of his body replaced by creaky 50s era bionic parts. Crotchety, difficult and longs to become relevant again. He’s also Harley and Ivy’s landlord, and insists they take him on their heists so can get back into the action – or else he won’t repair the plumbing. (SERIES REGULAR)
